#ReblogAlert- #TwoFer #ThisWeekOnStoryEmpire & #SmorgasbordWeeklyRoundUp

Well, folks … here it is Sun’s Day again, and I’m even farther behind than ever! Seems like “the hurrier I go, the behinder I get,” as the old saying goes. Once again, I didn’t have time to read all my favorite blogs this week, though I’ve been trying to stop by long enough to Like and Share, when possible. SE gang, I promise to catch up SOON, because your posts this week look amazing, and I want to see what they’re all about. Sally, I plan to scroll through your roundup later today, when I’m on a break from painting (walls and fences). But I have NO problem at all sharing these links so others will be reminded to stop by, because it’s a given that everything listed below will be well worth checking out. With that in mind, here we go:


MONDAY: D. Wallace Peach starts the week off with what I’m sure is another very helpful post entitled Crafting Rich Characters Part 4. Since characters are the most important element in any book I read (or write), I can’t wait to read Diana’s post. You can check it out HERE.

WEDNESDAY:Ā  Jan Sikes offers the next installment in her excellent series on marketing, entitled MKTG #13 – BookBub Ads. I’ve been planning to do something about my poor marketing this year, and this entire series has been a big help. I’m really going to enjoy learning more about BookBub, and you can check her post out HERE.

FRIDAY: Craig Boyack wraps up the week with a topic that struck a nerve with me, and immediately, I had to take a minute away from putting this reblog together to read it. It’s entitled Modern Day Censorship and you owe it to yourself to read both his post and all of the comments beneath, as well. This is something everyone should be concerned about, especially we writers and other artists. Check it out HERE.


And as always, Sally’s Weekly Roundup Post is absolutely filled to the max with wonderfully varied entertaining and informative posts. Don’t miss out!

And there you have this week’s #Twofer recap!
Happy Reading!

    • You are very welcome, Jan. I can’t wait to read your marketing post and Diana’s latest post on how to create great characters. I’m probably going to reread Craig’s post, too, as it definitely struck a chord with things that have really been bothering me. GREAT week on SE!! šŸ˜€ ā¤

    • You’re welcome, Sally! Had a great time at my talk yesterday, but will probably be back to work today and tomorrow, as Mark is taking another PTO so we can continue with household projects. Not a lot of fun, but still great, as we are accomplishing things we wanted and needed to do! Hope the rest of your day goes beautifully, too! šŸ˜€ ā¤

    • You’re welcome, Joan, and Craig sure did knock it out of the park! It was a great post on a serious and important topic, and I’m so glad I took a few minutes to read it. The SE posts and Sallys roundup are always terrific, and it’s a pleasure to pass them along. (Can’t wait to finish reading them later.) Thanks for stopping by! šŸ˜€ ā¤

  1. Glad the talk went well and that the essential painting etc is getting done. I’m envious because once you’re finished you’ll be able to properly relax in beautiful surroundings. I need to do more than Saly’s de-clutter! All of these posts were brilliant and Craig’s definitely made me think! ā¤

    • I really enjoyed Craig’s post too, Trish, and I agree with him on this issue. Glad you enjoyed all three SE posts and Sally’s roundup. I’m eager to take a break in a couple of hours and read Diana’s and Jan’s SE posts, too. I know I’ll enjoy both of them!

      Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’re right about being able to relax in beautiful surroundings one of these days. It’s what we’re aiming for, anyway! šŸ˜€ ā¤

    • You’re welcome, Craig. I’m taking a break in a minute to catch up with the two posts by Diana & Jan, which I know I’ll enjoy, but your post really hit home with me. I totally agree with you on it all, and will be checking back over the next few days for any new comments, too. It was a very timely post on some pretty serious issues, and I was grateful to hear your thoughts. Now I’m off to read the rest of the week’s goodies. Thanks for stopping by! šŸ˜€

    • You’re very welcome, Diana. Sadly, I didn’t get to take the break I was planning last night to read all THREE posts, but I’m definitely heading over there in a few minutes. Dying to see what you have to add to your series on crafting characters, and what Jan has to say on Marketing this time around. I know both posts will be filled with good stuff, so I’m planning to head over as soon as I finish going through my mail. LOVE sharing these posts!! šŸ˜€ ā¤

    • Thanks, Denise, and I hope your week is a great one, too! I misjudged when I thought I’d make it back to SE yesterday afternoon or evening, but I’m heading over there in a few minutes, I swear on a stack of Riverbend novels! šŸ˜ I can’t wait to see what Diana & Jan had to say, and know it will be good stuff! And I saw your review on That Darkest Place last night, and was truly happy you enjoyed the tale of the “other” two Painter brothers! Thank you so much for that! šŸ˜€ ā¤ I might just share it here later today, if I get a chance. Yep, I'm that pleased with your thoughts! šŸ¤—šŸ’–šŸ¤—
